sorry alex but I do not agree with that and I think your point of view is  
moving MABs to an old no more supported branch (i.e. 4.2.x) to the new  
supported branch (i.e. 4.3.x) is not a way of ignoring bugs but it's  
completely the opposite.

this way we still remember that old unfixed bugs exist and keep them in  
the list of higher priority.
so we don't ignore them but we try to keep attention on them.

regarding QA stats that's another unfair valutation from you...
the stats do not get cleaner at all since all the moved 4.2 MABs go in the  
count of the 4.3 MABs except those that were resolved during the branch  

as said in my original post, a consistent part of the 4.2.x MABs (more  
than 10%) turned to be RESOLVED WORKSFORME in the 4.3.x branch after  

so I feel more optimistic than you.
bye, Tommy
